Xbox Fitness subscription-based app coming to Xbox One

Removed webpage details next-gen fitness app

Xbox One will boast a subscription based fitness app, according to removed pages from the official Xbox One website.

The page temporarily appeared on the Xbox website, apparently in error as it has now been removed. Contributors to NeoGAF managed to capture the information though, which details a subscription model.

According to the description, Xbox Fitness will offer a pass system, and will allow users to compete with star trainers including Jillian Michaels and Tony Horton, among others.

The description read:

"Introducing the future of fitness. Experience the world's best workouts with instant, personalized feedback, right in your home on Xbox Fitness. Train with Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson, P90X, Insanity and more. Optimize every workout with immediate feedback on your form, power and heart rate with the all new Kinect, featuring Muscle Mapping, Power Gauge, and Pulse. Plus, feed your motivation with social challenges. Unlimited access is yours with an Xbox Live Gold membership through November 2014. Only on Xbox One."

The page also specified that after November 2014, "unlimited access requires a paid Xbox Fitness Pass subscription and an Xbox Live Gold membership," indicating that two separate subscriptions will be needed to access the content.

The information above suggests that access to some Xbox Fitness features will be available free to Gold subscribers for a year after the console's launch.

Microsoft has yet to formally announce the app, and the information above may not apply when the company chooses to do so.

The app won't be the only fitness software available for the Xbox One: Zumba Fitness: World Party is a launch title for the console, which launches November 22.
